A poem I wrote a while back and then saved onto my aol account.


I remember when I was young
I had all these dreams
they flowed through my mind
like a thousand river streams

I wanted to act
but couldn't remember my lines
I wanted to be seen
but had doubts in my mind

Dance, act, write and sing
I wanted to do them all
I am strong because I stand back up
I am weak because I continue to fall

I guess I am just a writer
and no one will really see me
I feel like a trapped prisoner
begging to be set free

AHH, confusion and doubt are like a two-headed snake. One side saying this, and the other side saying that. As a result we don't know which is more important or which road to choose.

Sometimes it takes years to find out what we are looking for. Sometimes never. As Joseph Cambell once said, "Follow your bliss."

i can relate to you in standing back up just to fall again, and at times its draining on you (well for me at least) but keep writing i would like to read more of your works. :) good work
